The Kris or Keris is the traditional heirloom weapon of the various cultures of Indonesia. Each of the Kris using cultures has a slight variation of this weapon. They are a powerful talisman and a symbol of a man’s status in society as well as being a weapon. Kris blades are made using alternating laminations of iron and nickel rich iron (pamor) to give them their characteristic pattern. The blades are wide at the base, double-edged, and often wavy although most, older Kris have straight blades.

This 19th Century Balinese Kris has a heavy, 420mm double-edged straight blade. The blade has a lenticular cross-section. The pamor layering of the blade can be clearly seen. The blade is in very good, clean condition and is sharp.

The Gahary (dark reddish-brown hardwood) hilt is in good condition with a great patina. The blade is firm in the hilt.

The Kris is complete with its hardwood scabbard which is in good condition. The blade sheathes and draws smoothly.

This is a fine example of a 19th Century Balinese Kris.
